Summary and Info
If a business expects to be a player in their market segment, their product(s) must have the quality expected by their customers. This can only be accomplished with test equipment that produces repeatable, accurate, and traceable measurements and/or outputs. Without a quality calibration system in place, this cannot and will not happen. This book is about how to design, implement, maintain, and continuously improve a quality calibration system, with all the required documentation, traceability, and known uncertainty for each and every item of test equipment owned and used by any company, large or small. It will benefit companies that want to implement a program and also those that already have one in place. Some industries have tighter requirements than others on how they treat calibration; some are more specific about how their standards are read, while being vague about what is needed to meet calibration. Is there one tried-and-true quality calibration system that every organization can use as a foundation for its personalized program? There certainly is, and this book describes it. By using the quality calibration system outlined and demonstrated, any organization can put together its own version to meet its specific requirements and/or regulations.
